Universal Music Catalogue UK announce this week the signing of the legendary British band the Sex Pistols, following the acquisition of the classic catalogue for the world excluding North America.
Johnny Rotten says: “Music can be great, when done by the great. The Sex Pistols are the greatest. Universal now has a trophy room, music is the imitation of nature, the Sex Pistols are nature, So please give generously. Thank you.”
Karen Simmonds, MD, UMC UK comments: “To be given the opportunity to re-evaluate the Sex Pistols catalogue is every music lover’s dream. We’re looking forward to working with the band and celebrating their impact on worldwide culture.”
An expanded and repackaged edition of ‘Never Mind The Bollocks Here’s The Sex Pistols’ will be scheduled for release later in 2012 to commemorate its 35th anniversary. UMC are also planning events and other releases throughout 2012 and beyond.
